Weight Watchers 2018 Program Changes and Review

Since it was founded in 1963, Weight Watchers has grown to be an internationally heralded weight loss solution. The program continues to be enhanced and revamped to include the most up to date nutrition research. Following are a few of the Weight Watchers 2018 program changes I’ve been able to discover so far, and a review of some of the improvements. Obviously, Weight Watchers is going to keep specifics under wraps until the big buy season, which happens right after Christmas.

Weight Watchers 2018 Program Changes

Home Delivery

One of the biggest things that might be coming in 2018 is home delivery of food! How awesome would that be? This may have something to do with Oprah’s involvement with Weight Watchers, and now everyone’s favorite lady might be coming out with a line of healthy frozen food versions of her own (like her cauliflower/mashed potato entree that’s supposed to be delish).

Weight Watchers has filed a patent application for a “smart portions” delivery service. It might look something like what they have going on with Chef’d. The company has partnered with Weight Watchers to produce a meal plan that’s custom tailored to the program and that they approve. I’m really looking forward to learning more about this one, and to me it would be one of my favorite Weight Watchers 2018 program changes.

Weekly Points

When it comes to points, there aren’t very many Weight Watchers 2018 program changes. Everyone starts with a target of 30 daily SmartPoints. You may get extra depending on the results of your initial assessment. You will also get a weekly allotment of SmartPoints depending on your weight, gender, etc. The absolute lowest number of weekly SmartPoints allocation is 14 based on a conversation I had with the expert chat team. However, 14 is very rare. Most people get between 21 and 35 weekly SmartPoints.

Food Calculations

I’ve always appreciated the fact that the brand has always been able to take complicated nutrition information and turn it into a simple number using their innovative algorithm. In the past, the plan’s algorithm was centered on broad categories that included calories, fat, protein, and carbohydrates. Now, using their new formula, Weight Watchers looks at the kind of fat in a specified food, for example, with saturated fats being more heavily pointed. Also, sugar and carbohydrates are calculated separately. Approximately 40 to 50% of the foods in the Weight Watchers system will have about the same points. Vegetables and fruits will still have zero points.

Minor Tweaks and Improved Special Offers

Other than that, they’ll make minor tweaks and improve the current offers, but with the rise in subscribers and the loss of 40 pounds by Oprah, I don’t expect to see many changes to the SmartPoints program. It seems like everything Oprah associates herself with turns to gold, and she’s definitely added a boost the Weight Watchers brand. Nobody’s really expecting too many Weight Watcher 2018 changes because the program’s great where it currently stands.

Same Attractive Promotion

Weight Watcher’s will continue their “join free promotion” (lose 10 lbs. and your first two months are on us).  After all, when you come up with a promotion that works, why not stick to it? Talk about incentive! Besides ending up with the first two months for free, you’ll feel motivated to stick to the program for the long term because you’ll have proof positive that it works – the 10 pounds you lost.

I hope you’ve found these Weight Watchers 2018 program changes helpful. I’m a firm believer in the plan, and if you haven’t tried it yet, join and get ready to see real results. Click here to get the best deal.

  1. I do not like the smart points can’t lose have tried. Need something new lots of people having trouble quit ww cause I was losing slow did everything and for 2 months I lost .2 tenths of a pound very discouraging I use to be a life time member. Stayed with weight watchers plan gained all but 4 lbs did everything by book.

  2. Personally, I love the program as it is. I’ve lost 125 pounds in 14 months and have less than 20 pounds to go. So I’m hoping there are no changes.

  3. I love this program. I have lost 30 pounds since the end of March. I made Lifetime 20 years ago. I never did well on the Smart Points program and quit. I ended up gaining 50 pounds after I quit. I have 30 pounds to go to reach my goal and plan on sticking with it.

    • Are you eating all of the points ? Like your ww points plus your weekly points ?
      I hardly ever touch the weekly points Z
      I started end of August and have lost 11 pounds .
      It is slow .

  4. I hate the WW plan as it is – I gained weight on it and quit WW. I wish they would go back to the old plan. None of the changes seem to be anything of interest to me.

    • I agree on the old program. I lost 65 lbs and then they changed the program and couldn’t lose. And now I heard they are changing the WW program again. I’m staying clear of paying them anymore money just to make them rich while I get poor and heavier. I have all the information from when I first started WW so I’ll use that.

  5. I started WW the last week in September 2017 I have lost 15 pounds. I have used all my points daily and some weeks I use all my Extras and go figure those weeks I lost more then your typical 1 pound. I do log everything that goes into my mouth, I find it really easy to follow. I hope the changes for 2018 are not to crazy.
